|Abstract: ||Developments in genetics have made it difficult to reject the existence of a genetic component of intelligence. Genetic research will soon describe the genetic components of intelligence and their interactions with environmental variables. Ethical questions arising from this research include the potential harm from administering genetic tests, the potential for widespread social discrimination, the allocation of resources to this research and the use of the results of this research to develop therapies to increase intelligence.|
